This was the greatest pizza ever. Thanks a lot for this.


Seriously. This was the best pizza dough ever. I doubled the recipe and used 2 C unbleached all-purpose flour with 1/2 C whole wheat flour. It turned out wonderful! I LOVED that I didn't have to wait for it to rise. I do think it could use a bit less oil than in the originial recipe, though.

This is going to be the staple dough recipe for all my future pizzas.


(My pizza has Follow Your Heart cheddar and mozzerella, Lightlife veggie pepperoni, and mushrooms)


This was good,it was quick and easy.  I made stuffed crust(vegan cheddar cheese) with homemade sauce, topped with vegan mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage and onions.  This was one of he best pizzas I ever made.  This is a keeper. O h yeah I added basil and oregano to the dough I love mines with those herbs in it.


wow VERY quick VERY easy and VERY tasty.  Mmm!  I upped the recipe to 2/3 cup water and 1 1/2 cup flour, thinking i'd need it to make a whole meal for myself (I eat a lot), but the original recipe would have been more than enough.  I put tomato sauce, basil, oregano, black pepper, garlic pepper, sliced red bell pepper, mushrooms and kalamata olives under shredded Vegan Gourmet mozarella.

BTW, WOW, I thought all vegan cheese was shit before tonight.  I mean, there are some cheese that I thought tasted okay -- and I love Lady Dragonfly's uncheese -- but even when it was good, I never thought fake cheese tasted much like cheese.  But the Vegan Gourmet mozarella is ABSURDLY delicious, and it tastes just like real mozarella, imo.  I couldn't believe it; I'd been a doubter so long.  I felt like Paul (it's Paul right?) on the road to Damascus.  I'd had VG cheddar before and didn't care for it.


This was quick & delicious. I added some oregano to it to add a little extra flavor. thanks for this recipe!


this recipe sounds sooo good. i want to try it with some good toppings, like broccoli, veggie sausage, and orange peppers. i want to put vegan mozzerella on it, but theres no store that sells it around here :'( are there any other good brands besides follow your heart?


OH my !!!!!!!! i was so excited to find an easy pizza crust, i added a few herbs and spices to spice it up a bit, Thank you so much :D


I LOVE this easy recipe, although I have modified it.  I change up the flour a bit by using almost a half cup of vital wheat gluten, a half cup of oats, a handful of flax seeds and the rest whole wheat flour.  I also add rosemary and garlic powder.  I don't turn my oven on until I have made the dough and then I let it sit by the oven while it heats.  This gives it a moment to rise and me a chance to prepare toppings!!!! :)


Simple, Fast & Delicious! I only used 1/2 teaspoon of Salt & used Olive Oil instead of Vegetable Oil. After cooking the dough for 5 min. I rubbed Olive Oil on the Crust Instead of Margerine.
My Toppings: Broccoli, 1 Tomato, Red/Yellow/Green Bell Pepper
I let the Pizza cook for 20 mins for a nice crisp.
Was Fabulous without Cheese! Great Recipe!


Baking is usually quite a challenge for me, so I was totally surprised that this recipe came out perfectly the first time!!! It was really delicious. I doubled the recipe to fill a 12 inch pan and used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 -1/2 cup unbleached white flour. I was expecting the whole thing to be kind of dense, chewy, and flavorless, but it was a perfect texture all the way through and completely yummy!!! I will use this recipe again and again. Thank you so much! (and thanks for making it so quick and easy!!!)  :D
